A lot of people are under the impression that Kiss, the band, are behind a lot of their recent releases such as this or the numerous greatest hits CDs available. While it's easy to blame the band, Kiss are no longer on this record label, and it's actually Universal who are releasing this stuff. Kiss, the band, have nothing to do with it.
However, 20th Century Masters has proven to be an excellent series of hits CDs, and this DVD is also a decent sampler of music. At these prices you simply can't go wrong. This DVD covers a lot of Kiss' 80's music videos: "I Love It Loud," "Lick It Up," "Heaven's On Fire," "Tears Are Falling," and "Crazy Crazy Nights."
"I Love It Loud", of course, features the band in full makeup and costumes, including Ace Frehley. Also noteworthy is "Lick It Up" with its then-popular "post-apocalyptic wasteland" setting, and Vinnie Vincent on guitar. "Crazy Crazy Nights" boasts some pretty big production values, and Bruce Kulick on guitar. Eric Carr was the drummer on all tracks.
Until Kiss, the band, decide to take some creative control and release a definitive video anthology, this is a great, cheap way to pick up some of Kiss' better music videos. Enjoy, but don't expect too much!
